Providing plenty of hiding spots with plants and other decor will give the females places to get to that will get them out of the male's sight every once in awhile. Other than chasing the females around is there any other signs of agression such as nipping of fins?
No just nugding into the side of her (but like really hard )and not letting her feed. and letting the other two females feed But it seems all the fish just go for this particular platy we have. we have plenty of hiding places and we feed them morining and night.
